: The Record Producers

The 15th, in a series of 18 programmes
Chinn and Chapman Introduced by Andy Peebles
NICKY CHINN and MIKE chapman were protigies of Mickie Most and, like him, they developed an almost infallible technique for creating chart success. As writers and producers they were able to personally supervise every stage in the making of hit singles, creating phenomenal success for themselves and for artists such as Sweet. Mud. Suzi Quatro and Smokie in the process. Their midas touch only wavered when punishing artistic criticism began to get to them. A move to the United States in the late 70s resulted in Mike Chapman successes with Exile. Nick Gilder , The Knack and more consistently with Blondie. Their own record company venture -
Dreamland - foundered disastrously last year, but a hit with the new Blondie album could restore some buoyancy.
A book to accompany the series will be available in May from booksellers

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
